Caught 4 shows of the enjoyed this set list the best. The eleven i enjoyed alot SOTM was my highlight. I really think this band is so much fun in so many ways, is it 1987 again. I think we as deadheads have a little more swag at the shows as well, young kids having fun. Thanks Bob n Phil for going Furthur! Fall tour plzzzz

The playing on this – by everyone in the band – is the best I’ve heard in a while. This summer tour has been a refreshing delight. I’d be hard pressed not to agree with Zen – this may be The One. Ran through this show all day and was never disappointed with the superb musicianship and the inspiring way the band Played Together.

Like DDawg – been to lots of Dead shows and occasionally the Real Time Band Conference on stage about What To Play, ( in the middle of a seg ), can become a little “Too Democratic” and it falls to someone to just take the ball and run. Furthur does not appear inclined to noodle about for five minutes while the band “discusses” the next song or seg. That said, some of my favourite memories of Dead shows were the 2nd set on stage bickering between Jerry & Bob, ( usually Phil would play moderator ), and the drummers occasionally just each ‘stirring the pot’ by alternately supporting Jerry’s notion, ( let’s play this… ), vs Bob, ( I thought we could play this and then I could jump around and scream real loud ). Oft times Phil would cast the deciding vote.

This little mid-show dance almost always occurred in the 2nd set and was most noticeable in the 80’s shows. As referenced here – once in a while the process dragged on and Jerry would usually tire of it first and just drag the band along.

So, coming out of Terrapin there was a few moments when it did seem they were unsure if they’d roll into a Playin’ reprise, UJB, or head straight to Cryptical. Boby just made a Command Decision – “We’re doing Estimated”. And fessed up.

Subject: Why did Bobby say that?
Dpes anyone know what Bobby was referring to about 30 seconds into Estimated when he said, "a little too democratic"?

The Furthur summer tour 2012 was strong from start to finish. But perhaps this was the highlight. A both smooth and adveturous concert from the opening notes to the end. Awesome bassplaying, a Bob Weir on top of his game, the magic guitar of John Kadlecik (the 'fake Jerry' haters/trolls should realy, really get a grip on themselves). Joe Russo and Jeff Chimenti are simply top notch players. The background vocalists shine when necessary.

An A+ recording Suraci-style of a memorable show.

After seeing scores of Grateful Dead shows from '91-'95, and a whole bunch of The Dead during the summer of '03, this was to be my first Furthur show. My sense after '03 was bitter sweet. Yes, it was great to hear tunes like Reuben & Cerise, St. Stephen, New Potato, and so on, but I always felt as if it were a cover band on stage. This Furthur arrangement, however, had its own special integrity. The band gave much more than I ever could have expected. The musicians are top-shelf, and their interpretations do justice to the music and take it to another level. The jams in the 2nd set (particularly Eyes) are astounding. Furthur, independent of what one thinks and feels about the Grateful Dead, is just an outstanding band.
With all of that said, my wife and I--both of us thoroughly engrossed, attending completely to the music, and celebrating our 8th wedding anniversary to boot--could not be more dismayed by some of the younger folks around us. One chap was literally trying to out shout Bobby during Estaimated, while another could not help but join in the playing by slamming his shoes on the tops of our seats during Eyes. I understand completely that that the audience and the band make the music together, but some of these dudes need to get a grip and let the music play.

So says the guy I was standing next to. In any event, Tony Suraci knows what he is doing. Thanks Tony!
